"The preservation of a free government requires, not merely that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained, but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great barrier which defends the rights of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such encroachment exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are TYRANTS. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them and are slaves….."

Plugging The PCR Test Into The C19 Panic-Mongering Picture

...you know, the test revealing all the alleged "cases" now being used as the rationale for continuing to extend the two-week "curve flattening" impositions of "lockdown", masking, "social distancing", etc...

LET'S START WITH a little review. To begin with, let's remember that "flattening the curve" was the soft pitch back in March, so that the healthcare infrastructure would not be overwhelmed. That was the sole rationale for "lockdown", "social-distancing", masks and all the rest.

No one ever agreed to hunker down and let ourselves be treated as presumptive disease vectors and to let our children be conditioned with fear and denied normal healthy development as human beings in order to eliminate all chance of anyone catching the virus. Nor did we do so in order to spare germophobes and hypochondriacs the need to use adequate PPE and to personally inconvenience themselves alone until they could get vaccinated and convince themselves that they were then safe from risk of infection.

LET'S ALSO REMEMBER that there never WAS any overwhelming of the healthcare infrastructure, when all the mitigation insanity was in full swing and when none of it was. The closest thing to crowded hospitals came in the early days when the panic-mongering was most effective and those in the most poorly-educated and least-educable underclass demographic rushed into urban hospitals as soon as a bad head cold developed, certain it was the dreaded C19.

Many of those folks then ended up strapped to their beds, dosed with paralytics, and fitted with death-inducing ventilators, eventually being used to falsely inflate the alleged Covid-19 fatality figures to the great satisfaction of the panic-mongering and exploiting political and commercial interests, and the great financial benefit of the hospitals involved.

LET'S REMEMBER, TOO that 42% of the overall total of those C19 fatality figures are of the very old and sick in nursing homes to which elderly patients sick with contagious respiratory illnesses were sent by certain state governors, who apparently felt those older patients were not "essential" enough to deserve a hospital bed. These gubernatorially-installed disease vectors were likely sick with the normal seasonal flu (which doctors were encouraged to designate as C19), but that's just as fatal a virulent illness as anything out there when installed within an elderly population-- and especially an elderly population with comorbidities.

Especially let's remember that by mid-March, and before any of the "lockdown" and masking and "social-distancing nonsense, many millions of Americans had already been infected with C19 and had had the disease runs its course completely. This wildfire of infections produced fewer than 100 fatalities during its three+ months from onset to the needless imposition of panic-induced lives- and livelihoods-destroying "safety" measures which have been in place ever since, justified by steadily and dramatically-fudged numbers of purported fatalities actually reached by calling virtually every death from any cause a "C19 death" when C19 can even be speculatively imagined to be present.

That tragic but tiny case fatality rate last winter provides a true picture of the relatively harmless nature of the disease. Plainly, C19 tracks the also-massively-oversold "swine flu" pandemic a whole lot more closely than the "Spanish flu" pandemic of 1918 to which it is often hysterically likened.

Adding Another Dot To Connect In The Chain

IN MAY, THE HYSTERIA WANED SOMEWHAT, at least among medical professionals. Calmer heads pulled back on the practice of reporting every patient with symptoms of a bad head cold a C19 victim, and the deaths of any so distinguished, even if from a decades-old condition of COPD or diabetes or heart disease, as a C19 death.

With the reportable death toll falling as a consequence of the calm-down, the existing rationale for perpetuating the oppressive and ruinous "lockdown" measures became fragile. At the same time, the importance of maintaining the panic and letting a "new normal" settle in past the point of hard questions being given a fair hearing grew, as those responsible for the unwarranted "mitigation" measures realized their indefensible culpability for many deaths and an unprecedented ruination of lives, all committed in defiance of the law.

So, a replacement rationale was quickly queued-up. Now the excuse is a purportedly burgeoning number of "cases"-- meant to be taken as outbreak of infections which could, we are to imagine, flare into life-threatening severity in great numbers of people at any moment.

However, just as the number of C19 fatalities has been grossly over-stated, so too is the alleged proliferation of "cases".

YOU SEE, THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE TOUTED "CASES" are based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests. PCR tests, while capable of indicating that a person has had the C19 virus in them (or molecules of the virus, at least), are ONLY able to make that singular determination. It is incapable of determining that the test subject is sick with the disease, or how long ago that person's exposure (and likely infection, considering the purported virulence of this pathogen) occurred.

Here is a statement on the limited character and capabilities of the PCR test by Kary Mullis, its Nobel laureate inventor (speaking at the time about its utility in HIV detection):

SO, PCR TESTS DO NOT INDICATE the presence of actual infection. More significant still in debunking the false "outbreak" narrative these tests are being fraudulently used to support is the fact that the test is also incapable of indicating WHEN an exposure/infection took place.

Let that sink in: PCR tests cannot be called upon to show the onset or occurrence of any "outbreak". Thus, PCR test results, even lots of "positives" from the same area, cannot serve as justifications for continued fear or persistence of supposed mitigation measures, such as "lockdowns", masking, or "social distancing".

As likely as not, every such "positive" simply means that the subject was among the 36 - 51 million Americans which we know were exposed to C19 during the winter of 2020 and came through unscathed-- without hospitalization or even merely a visit to the doctor, in most cases. Thus, every such "positive" just confirms that massive exposure during the winter, and underscores and emphasizes the pointlessness of mitigation impositions in regard to an illness thoroughly shown to be relatively harmless.

Already-ailing seniors, and the elderly in general, need to take steps to protect themselves from infection, to be sure-- just as the same groups have always had to take steps to protect themselves from seasonal flu infections, which are just as deadly to these vulnerable populations.

But everyone else can and should unmask.

Everyone else should hug their neighbors, re-open their businesses and return everything in America to its fashions and practices of this time last year as quickly as possible.

Contrary to the spin of the panic-beneficiaries, every "case" that is announced on the news makes this more and more clear.

I'M GOING TO CLOSE this article with two videos. In the first a German attorney announces and explains an international coalition of legal professionals which is preparing class action lawsuits against the continuation of the fraud-based "mitigation" impositions and those behind them. A lot of good information and perspective is presented here, in a very cool and businesslike fashion. It's well worth the 49 minutes.

In the second video (really just an audio file in a video format), the always excellent Van Morrison shares the first of a trio of "lockdown" protest songs he is releasing. Wonderful!

BTW, the legendary Morrison has been joined by the equally legendary Eric Clapton in his efforts of protest against "lockdown" madness; see the story here.

And always remember:

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

-Edmund Burke

 

"Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked."

-Proverbs 25:26

 

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do."

-Everett Hale

Regarding The "Militia" Arrests In Michigan Last Week

...concerning which the dialogue is more interesting in what is going unsaid than in what is being said.

THE FIRST THING TO BE SAID is that very little is being said. As of Sunday morning, more than 72 hours after the arrests were announced and 48 hours after a series of local and national news blurbs were aired and the Friday papers offered some hyperventilated police-blotter-grade reportage, the media appears to have largely let the matter drop.

I have yet to find a single bit of punditry in the alt-media upon which I am usually able to rely for at least honest, and generally courageous, commentary on newsworthy events. Nor can any MSM coverage of the matter be found that is more recent than Friday other than a batch of opinion pieces, clunky "bios" of the accused and the standard, "I never would have guessed" interviews of their neighbors offered in the Sunday Detroit Free Press.

NEXT, LET ME POINT OUT, for the sake of those who didn't follow this story closely during its brief MSM airing, that there were actually two apparently distinct sets of arrests. One was of six suspects charged by the feds with plotting to seize Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer at gunpoint and put her on trial for treason.

The other arrests conducted at the same time were by the state of Michigan and involve accusations against seven men in which "plotting the violent overthrow of the government" is dramatically declared. However, no one in this latter group is charged with anything but "gang membership", "threat of terrorism", "providing material support for terrorist acts" and "carrying or possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony".

Though more information may well change the picture eventually, this group charged by Michigan appears to have been of little more than hardcore preppers triggered by the manifest illegality of the "lockdowns", the absurd pretexts on which they were based, and the obvious fake news by which they continued to be justified over the months. These folks seem to have concluded that some despotic plan was being rolled out and had begun doing the equivalent of digging bomb shelters and laying in supplies, which in this case involved making contingency plans and doing some training for a latter-day Lexington and Concord.

DESPITE THE LACK OF ANY distinctly-alleged connection between the two groups arrested, and the plain distinctions between them in both charges and charging authorities, all reportage that I have seen confusingly (or confusedly) mixes the two together (as in the example here). No clarification is apparently available from either federal or state officials.

In light of this seeming officially-welcomed confusion in the narrative, one has to wonder if it is not deliberate. Perhaps it is meant to clutter the landscape a bit and and obscure or make more difficult to address the context of the "arrest Gretchen Whitmer and put her on trial" offense with which the one group is charged (and to a lesser degree obscure the backstory regarding the "preppers", as well).

Here is what is being obscured: Whether Gretchen Whitmer has committed "treason" is open to legal interpretation. But it is indisputable that she and her co-conspirators have engaged in a sustained series of felonies and open defiance of the Michigan Constitution in the form of her various "lockdown" edicts, as was acknowledged just six days prior to these arrests by Michigan's own Supreme Court (and as has been obvious from the get-go to anyone doing even the most rudimentary examination of the Constitution).

And yet, this highly significant aspect of the story is going entirely unremarked in all coverage I have seen concerning last week's arrests.

More, Whitmer's despotic crime-spree has done vast harm to huge numbers of people-- very possibly including several thousand deaths among residents of nursing home to which contagious patients were sent on her orders, actual C19 victims denied access by Whitmer's orders to life-saving hydroxychloroquine treatments, and incidental victims of suicide, drug overdose, domestic violence, deferred medical treatment and immune-system compromise occasioned by orders to "shelter-in-place" and "self-quarantine" and the panic encouraged by same.

Whitmer has tried to justify her illegal acts by claiming that they "saved lives". But there is actually no evidence whatever by which that claim can be verified, and, in fact, all the evidence says otherwise.

The massive harms done, on the other hand, are established facts.

And frankly, even if it could be proven that Constitutional violations saved lives, they are still criminal acts. The Constitution provides for no "suspension" for even the best of intentions or even because a real benefit might be had to purportedly balance against the certain evil inherent in eroding the rule of law.

NOW, DON'T GET ME WRONG. None of this context-discussion is meant to suggest that a plot to kidnap Whitmer was justified, if such a plot there was.

But these facts regarding Whitmer's actions over the last seven months are surely relevant and necessary for accurate, complete reporting and opining on the subject of these arrests. This need is illustrated by reports and interviews in which Whitmer and her supporters have gotten away with gratuitously characterizing the suspects as "anti-government" (which is to suggest they are mindless and indefensible anarchists or nihilists), when the omitted facts suggest that a much more accurate characterization might be, "anti-illegal-government".

And yet, these facts are going entirely unremarked in all coverage I have seen concerning last week's arrests.

Indeed, all told, the "official" confusion of charges and conflation of the two groups charged in this sudden 13-man arrest event-- and the timing of the arrests, as well-- seem calculated to push off the front page what had been the growing recognition of Gretchen Whitmer's crimes (and by extension, those of other governors who issued the same illegal edicts as Whitmer, along with a number of federal public health officials and media voices who all played supporting roles in the myriad harms done).

But maybe I'm just a cynic...

I'LL CLOSE WITH MENTION OF ONE OTHER THING WHICH, while not entirely unsaid in other places where it ought to be, merits being said more loudly for special reasons in this case: We must recognize that the truth of the accusations cannot actually be known until a fair trial has been held and all the evidence presented, and in fact, we must consider it an established fact that the charges are false until a sufficiency of tested evidence has proven otherwise, if such evidence exists.

This presumption of innocence is true in all accusations of course, but even more so in this one. Here, the timing of the charges-- and their obvious convenience to culpable "lockdown" offenders and their narrative managers-- should raise everyone's skeptical antennae, as should the matter of the informant whose was paid $8,600 to secretly record the suspects during meetings of which he was a part. The incentive for such a person to prompt conversations of a potentially-incriminating variety is obvious, and may be the sole reason any such things were said, it indeed such things were said at all.

Those antennae should go especially high in light of another consideration: the "Hutaree" pretense of just ten years ago. In that bit of theater-- possibly engineered onto the front pages for political and spin-management reasons (and hard to see it as anything else in light of the outcome)-- charges strikingly-similar to those in the instant affair were leveled against eight men and one woman in 2010, only to be ultimately found entirely bogus by the federal judge presiding over the case.

Again: Antennae up, people, and keep the whole picture firmly in focus.

P.S. I could go on to talk about the fact that, assuming the truth of the accusations, anyone feeling aggrieved by Gretchen Whitmer's actions should never have contemplated taking the law into their own hands, but should have instead gone to Dana Nessel, Michigan's Attorney General, and demanded that her office do its job and bring charges against Whitmer. If getting no satisfaction down that avenue, these aggrieved citizens should have then turned to the U.S. Attorney stationed in one place or another in Michigan, seeking a federal solution.

But, no. I'll leave it to each reader to think those things through on their own.

Remember 'War Games'?

THIS VIDEO PROJECTS THE PROGRESS of a nuclear exchange between Russia and the United States. It's frightening, as it should be, as well as sobering and instructive. My only criticisms are, first of all, that it fails to account for the imbalance that will now be present in any such exchange due to the new Russian hypersonic weapons.

Secondly, the video fails to account for China's contribution to the exchange against the US, which is a virtual certainty. China knows that if Russia goes, and the US survives, it goes soon after. So, that will not be allowed to happen.

The Entire Legal And Practical Truth About The Income Tax In Three Short Sentences

Focus on these simple points and you can teach anyone the truth about the tax.

1. The income tax is an excise.

2. Excise taxes are taxes on the gainful exercise of privileges.

3. You probably didn't earn your money by exercising any taxable privilege (or earned very little that way).

Inarguable (and nowhere disputed) proof of the first two statements above can be found concisely spelled-out in this little 7-page document. Whether the third is true for any particular person can be determined by consulting this guide to understanding "income-taxable privilege".

Daft And Despicable Deniers

What the hell is wrong with these people?!

CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE how abysmally stupid someone would have to be to continue to doubt or deny that CtC has revealed the actual, complete and insurmountable truth about the income tax in light of the overwhelming mountain of historical, legal, practical and logical evidence to the contrary? (Not to mention the outright lies and even ludicrous hoaxes the executive and some corrupt members of the judiciary have been caught at in desperate efforts to conceal the truth...)

Plainly any such denier must either be abysmally stupid or be an abysmally corrupt government official or other person who sees him or herself as benefitting from the lies about the tax by which America has suffered for 75 years now. Isn't this true?

Important guest observations and commentary with an important afterword by Yours Truly

 

Lockdown: The New Totalitarianism

by Jeffrey A. Tucker

Every political ideology has three elements: a vision of hell with an enemy that needs to be crushed, a vision of a more perfect world, and a plan for transitioning from one to the other. The means of transition usually involve the takeover and deployment of society’s most powerful tool: the state. For this reason, ideologies trend totalitarian. They depend fundamentally on overriding people’s preferences and choices and replacing them with scripted and planned belief systems and behaviors.

An obvious case is communism. Capitalism is the enemy, while worker control and the end of private property is the heaven, and the means to achieve the goal is violent expropriation. Socialism is a softer version of the same: in the Fabian tradition, you get there through piecemeal economic planning.

The ideology of racism posits something different. The hell is ethnic integration and race mixing, the heaven is racial homogeneity, and the means of change is the marginalization or killing off of some races. Fascism imagines global trade, individualism, and immigration to be the enemy while a mighty nationalism is heaven: the means of change is a great leader. You can observe the same about certain brands of theocratic religious traditionalism.

Each of these ideologies comes with a primary intellectual focus, a kind of story designed to occupy the mind. Think about exploitation. Think about inequality. Think about race theory. Think about national identity. Think about salvation. Each comes with its own language to signal one’s attachment to the ideology.

Most of the above ideologies are well worn. We have plenty of experience to draw on from history to observe the patterns, recognize the adherents, and refute the theories.

This year has given us a new ideology with totalitarian tendencies. It has a vision of hell, of heaven, and a means of transition. It has a unique language apparatus. It has a mental focus. It has signaling systems to reveal and recruit adherents.

That ideology is called lockdown. We might as well add the ism to the word: lockdownism.

Its vision of hell is a society in which pathogens run freely. Its heaven is a society managed entirely by medical technocrats whose main job is the suppression of all disease. The mental focus is the viruses and other bugs. The anthropology is to regard all human beings as little more than sacks of deadly pathogens. The people susceptible to the ideology are the people with various degrees of mysophobia, once regarded as a mental problem now elevated to the status of social awareness.

This year has been the first test of lockdownism. It included the most intrusive, comprehensive, and near-global controls of human beings and their movements in recorded history. Even in countries where the rule of law and liberties are sources of national pride, people were put under house arrest. Their churches and businesses were closed. The police have been unleashed to enforce it all and arrest open dissent. The devastation compares with wartime except that it was a government-imposed war on people’s right to move and exchange freely. We still cannot travel.

And remarkably, after all of this, what remains missing is the empirical evidence, from anywhere in the world, that this shocking and unprecedented regime had any effect on controlling much less stopping the virus. Even more remarkably, the few places that remained fully open (South Dakota, Sweden, Tanzania, Belarus), points out Will Jones, “lost no more than 0.06% of their population to the virus,” in contrast to high deaths lockdown New York and Britain.

Afterword

AS ALWAYS, I HOPE YOU READ THE FEATURED OBSERVATION ABOVE in its entirety. Tucker says a lot, and all of it is important.

The most important thing to be gotten from the piece is the simple and serious-as-a-heart-attack fact that the American experiment is RIGHT NOW under the most dangerous existential threat it has ever faced-- by a lot. However much the panic-campaign of the last nine months has worked to make them seem reasonable, the "lockdowns" and all other measures purportedly meant to mitigate the pretended unprecedented threat of COVID-19 (C19) are the dagger-strike at liberty and the rule of law generations of Cold Warriors mistakenly feared would come from the USSR or China.

There really IS a coup being carried out right now, on both a cultural and a legal level, and its object is your subjugation. Fail to rise against it at your peril.

I HAVE EQUIPPED ANY WHO WILL BOTHER TO DO A LITTLE READING with a package of data and analysis proving that C19 is not, and never has been, itself a meaningful threat to anyone. That data, showing 36 - 51 million C19 infections in America from December, 2019, through March, 2020, with only 97 fatalities attributable to the disease during the whole period, makes clear that the "lockdown" regime is based on a fraud and is being perpetuated for in service to an agenda, not for the sake of your safety.

It has become an abiding heartache of mine that my strenuous presentation of this illuminating, "wake up" data for months now has gone entirely un-seconded by even those in this CtC community. I had expected otherwise.

I believe that if this material were widely distributed and discussed, the "lockdownism" assault (to use Tucker's apt neologism) would be thwarted. But that happy outcome will only be possible if the material is distributed and discussed quickly.

Vigorously-promoted spin and frauds of the sort on which the "lockdownism" imposition relies become embedded and impossible to undo if allowed too much time to put down their roots. Such attacks can only be turned aside by equally vigorous and timely corrective opposition.

There is still time to save America, I think, but barely.

How things turn out is in your hands.

A New Policy

I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood and more than a few tears. But I seem to be pretty poor at that kind of work.

When I have asked all of you for what I firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball downfield and give all of us the best chance at justice and an end to the assault on the rule of law-- simple testimonial videos requiring nothing from any of you but the phone in your pocket and three minutes of speaking from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people answer my call.

I CAN'T KEEP GOING THIS WAY. I have to be able to turn my attention away from writing new persuasive or skepticism-addressing articles week after week, and toward research, analysis and educational presentations that will benefit everyone already in this community. I need time to do some suing, and to bring together the resources and talent toward that end.

As said, it is my firm belief that your testimonial videos are the resource that I need to make big things happen, and they are unquestionably the thing I need to allow me to turn my attention away from trying to get horses to drink at the waterhole to which I have led them. Your words, in your great numbers and all in your own different ways, will do that better than anything I write possibly could.

And yet, you are not providing them. This, despite my having been asking you for them for many years now.

Therefore, with enormous reluctance, I am making portions of this website restricted access only. People have been urging me to do this for years now, telling me I should impose a charge to access my work-product, so as to enable me to keep producing.

I have never been inclined to charge fees for access. I ask for donations, and will continue to do that, and if they do not come, then I will conclude that my work is of no value to anyone, and I will close shop.

But I now WILL charge a special something for access to some key portions of that work.

Opening selected pages on LHC comprising higher level legal resources now requires the submission of qualifying testimonial videos, as discussed, described and demonstrated here. The videos must be accompanied by scans of a recent educated filing along with responsive documents from the IRS, whether in the form of a check, a notice identifying and reflecting the filed return, or "return" and "account" transcripts for the year for which the return was filed. Names must be shown in full.

Similarly, if an email comes my way asking for guidance or assistance, I had better already have your video posted.

I HATE TO PLAY IT THIS WAY. But I want to win.

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age in their careers had run into a wall common to all but the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good, and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging back from seizing the main chance when it appeared, and driving for the goal.

My solution was to post on the wall of our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline, the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if you don't take a shot.

That's how it is here, too. If you don't stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score that goal.

Here is what my kids live by now, in their own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard, or go home.

You, too. Go hard, or go home. Send those videos.

Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories to post, your financial support, your efforts at spreading the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words, too. It IS a lot.

But it's not too much. I'll let Thomas Paine explain:

"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”

Fear nothing but God.

What Makes YOU A Warrior For The Truth?

We each have our reasons, and our story. It's time, and it's needed, for you to share yours with the world.

P.S. READ EVERYTHING THAT FOLLOWS, CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY!!

 

"The day we see truth and do not speak is the day we begin to die."

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

What does it for you?

Is it simply because no moral and upstanding person has any choice when it comes to telling the truth over his or her signature, whether on tax forms or anywhere else?

Is it recognition of the critical importance of the rule of law, and the knowledge that if everybody leaves its caretaking to someone else, it will soon be lost to us completely?

Is it the money?

Maybe it's just simple respect for your own rights as a human being, who is not and cannot be not involuntarily subordinated to others?

Maybe it's just simple respect for your general civic responsibility to be the grown-up and enforce frugality and restraint on a big, powerful creature of our own devising which otherwise is like a badly-raised teenage boy given whiskey and car keys and let loose on the road to wreak havoc?

Or is it, perhaps, a more acute anxiety that if our bonfire of a state isn't damped, and quickly, it'll soon burn down the house around us all?

What IS it that firms up your jaw and stiffens your resolve?

It's time to take off the bushel and share your light!

I would like you to think about what it is that motivates you for a few moments (or all day, if you like), and then send me your thoughts. I want to put YOUR reasons to work inspiring folks who don't yet understand what this is all about.

In this day and age, the most effective way for you to share your thinking for the benefit of others is to video-record yourself talking about how you feel, and explaining what inspires and motivates YOU.

All you need is a webcam or cell-phone equipped with a camera. If you don't have, or know how to use, one of these, have a friend help. (And if you use a cell-phone, please have the orientation horizontal, not vertical-- that is, so that the screen of the phone on which you are watching yourself while taping looks like a TV or movie screen.)

If needed, write a little script for yourself. Better, though, to just speak extemporaneously, after spending a little time sorting out your thoughts and getting down into your heart. Perhaps make it a video of someone in your family, or a close friend, interviewing you.

Dress "business casual". Be well-groomed.

Keep yourself to no more than 2 or 3 minutes, and keep in mind that the purpose is not to educate, but to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE. Your video will be one of many to be shared. If you need to go longer to really say your piece, go for it (but long or short I may edit if something strikes me as wandering or off-key or unacceptable).

You needn't feel any obligation to be profound, and you shouldn't try to explain anything about the law, other than to say that you have read it and you know it's on your side. You just need to be sincere, and uplifting. Your object is to make your audience want to have what you have, and to be where you are in your heart.

Don't talk to ME, or to others in the CtC-educated community. Make remarks that are suited to the NON-CtC-educated community, and at the same time, be mindful that you're speaking to an audience that doesn't yet know ANYTHING about the subject, and whose first reaction is, "This must be illegal; this must be dangerous; this is too good to be true." You want to pull that audience right past such things, and straight to a focus on truth, morality, and our American heritage of liberty and the rule of law.

Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.

Speak about rights. Speak about morality, and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution. Speak about everyone's duty to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation to respect yourself, and to look out for the current and future well-being of your children and your fellow citizens. Speak of CtC, and what its information has done for your understanding and resolve. Show the book.

If you have had victories, describe them. Better still, show them, if possible.

Be clear about just what you accomplished: EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all; a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s; or whatever happened.

When you speak of state victories, name the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!

If you're in a battle now, speak of your resolve to uphold the law, come what may-- why you're not discouraged, and why you are not standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and not choosing to endorse the lies. Don't get into details-- your audience is going to have no idea what a "LTR3176" is, and you will NOT be capable of explaining it adequately. This is an subject area concerning which you should speak from the heart, not the head.

If you haven't yet begun to act, share the reasons for your decision to do so, and your plans.

Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE.

Watch your own video after you record it and ask yourself: Putting yourself in the place of someone completely immersed in "the matrix"-- oblivious to any notions that you might have been a victim of an "ignorance tax", and comfortable with the status quo-- would the video you just made encourage you to push aside your comforting illusions and learn the liberating truth? If not, try again.

Identify yourself. Anonymity is for criminals and self-doubters, not CtC warriors. Naming yourself is a requirement, and your name will appear as a subtitle on the video when I prepare it for posting, in any event.

Mention what you do for a living, whether you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy or gal, retiree or student. Help people understand that the company of grown-up activist Americans they are being invited to join cuts across all demographics and all interests-- with the common denominator being respect for the law and love of the principles on which this great country was founded.

This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.

We've all had frustrating occasions of trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks who have themselves decided that it's time for them to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your testimonial for exactly that reason.

Further, think about this: You want judges, bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly. How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?

You want these folks to learn the truth. Why would they even recognize that there is a truth to be learned if you won't attest to having learned it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen the government evasions and you know that the tax is not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants everyone to think it is but a benign, strictly limited thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.

Again, if you have victories to show, that's nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have victories to display in order to declare your knowledge of what the law says. I've never flown around the world, but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments, and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...

Even those of you who haven't yet studied CtC have surely read this short document, and have verified everything in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again, if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will ever even bother to look at the facts?

Be the change you want to see in the world, or there won't be any change.

So, please make and send those videos right away! You can share them with me via a cloud-based drive space like DropBox, OneDrive.Live.com or GoogleDrive (if you do GoogleDrive you MUST give access permission to stategroups@losthorizons.com), or mail DVDs to me at 232 Oriole St., Commerce Twp., Michigan 48382, or even email to me if each file is no more than 20 megs (and you can break a video up if need be-- I can reassemble them). Render as .mpg or mp4, if possible; if not, send them how you have them and I'll make them work.

BTW: An encouraging and inspiring video will earn you access to the restricted pages on losthorizons.com and membership in the National Forum if you have also sent me a recent educated federal filing and IRS response (or relevant "return" or "account" transcript). I will be the judge of whether your submissions qualify for access, but if you do your best you should do fine.

Remember, the restoration of institutional respect for individual rights and the rule of law depends on enough individuals insisting upon it. Do your part to let those starting to rub the sleep from their eyes know that there is a community already waiting for their fellowship with open arms and open hearts and shining spirits.

See how some of your fellow warriors for the truth have done their parts in videos sent over the years, many of which are posted here.

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

Critical Inquiries for a New American Century

Bob’s Bicycles

or

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As Falling Off A Bike

To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works, try this little exercise:

Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob, who lives down the street from you in a town that is really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting, deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking, bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in your town.

Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and away the biggest business in town.

Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders who have signed an agreement with him, or even just those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd combination of circumstances that took many years to come together.

Here's how it happened...

Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started out not only with a main location for his contract business-- he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone could take and use one of these bikes, but they were expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate rent), periodically. The initial design of the form was like this:

I, ______________, rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles this year.

At Bob's rental rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______

I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms" to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he would sue the company involved-- said:

You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know What You’re Fighting About

If you are having an argument with the IRS or any other tax agency,

  • You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate profit”.

  • You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign income”.

  • You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion contract”.

  • You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject is never identified.

You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply-- even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect, and CAN be corrected.

A Few Tips For Making Best Use Of This WebSite

USE THE SITE MAP!!!

USE THE SITE SEARCH!!!

When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.

I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend my time...

Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated with, the text you are reading, follow it!

It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent to the original text.

It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are confident that they are familiar with language or references within the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over included links. I do it all the time, myself!

However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding of the original page. (Links to CtC, the Victories pages, CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory Highlights or 'Every Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions, are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith, themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)

Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which you are completely familiar from another study session.

Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again if it's been a while since your last having done so.

Assessing The Damage From The Misapplication Of The Income Tax

Man, are young Americans getting ripped off...!

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they have been resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress."
